Family Park Burgenland: Take your toddlers there in the off-season.

Certain adventures you probably only experience with (your own?) children. Last summer, thanks to our lovely neighbouring family, we got the idea to join them on a trip to the Family Park in Sankt Margarethen in Burgenland. Liam’s little friend (and also his parents) were just raving about their previous day trips there.

Family Park Burgenland: Fun rides amidst shady trees for young & old.

Well.

Heading for a popular destination in the middle of high season (so long waiting times, crowded rides and hot temperatures in addition to all the fun for the kids) left us as parents feeling chastened – especially since we still had baby Levin with us, too. It was fun, but also exhausting. So we decided:

 

“Liam, we’ll come again when all the school kids are gone!”

About a month later, then, looking at our calendars, we settled for a weekday at the end of September, when it would certainly be quieter. And so it was. I can only recommend that you pay attention to the travel date when choosing amusement parks for (small) children.

It pays to find a day when all the older children are guaranteed to be at school. A good way to spare the nerves of small children (and those of the parents)!

Arriving at the Family Park in Sankt Margarethen during a routine school week: No queues at the entrance!

 

In the park itself, we don't have to queue for any of the rides either, we can always get on directly

and off you go! So the € 30,- day admission (per person, for children from the age of three) pays off quickly.

Conclusion: We upgraded from the day pass to the annual pass. We’ll be back!

A day ticket currently costs € 30; with this you can upgrade to an annual ticket at a reduced rate. From Vienna, it takes about an hour to get there, depending on where you live, longer during the high season as the entrance to the (numerous) car parks is congested. There are plenty of places to eat on site, as well as areas where you can eat the snacks you brought with you.

We soon realise that any admission fees are really worth it, even for small children, considering the numerous and varied attractions. There were also a few fun rides for us adults, such as the Götterblitz or the Biberbahn, which offer a little thrill (or white water!). Nice!

See you soon at Family Park Burgenland 🙂
